There's something about sunny winter days that makes us ache for a nice book, hot coffee and great conversation. And what better than your own literature fest to get into that mood, Delhi?

That's right. The capital would be hosting its 4th annual Delhi Literature Festival this year over the coming weekend i.e 8-10th January 2016.

Now we've got our hands on the speakers and sessions lined up, believe us, it was quite hard for us to pick out some you wouldn't want to miss. Because they're all pretty damn exciting.

Right from the Arushi murder case that has had the nation guessing for years now, to the intolerance debate and even Rahul Gandhi, these sessions would make you want to spend all your time at Dilli Haat, opposite INA market this weekend.
